Pelican Nebula and Milky Way uploaded

Well, the skies actually cleared (more or less) last night and I managed to get some halfways decent images. Guiding wasn’t perfect and I didn’t get very many good exposures, but I managed to make something of it. The Pelican Nebula is located right next to the North American Nebula (see the picture taken last year — you can actually see part of the Pelican in that shot) in the northern spiral arm of the Milky Way. The posted picture was taken with my F/9 ED100. I also piggybacked my Nikon and took a stack of the Milky Way, centered on the Pelican.  You can actually see the red North American Nebula near the center.
